Proud to be your business and personal legal advisors


A surge in the volume and complexity of UK and EU legislation means today’s working environment is now so comprehensively governed that many duties and penalties imposed on a business will extend to the management and directors personally.

While a police, Health and Safety Executive or other regulatory investigation can be daunting, we understand the risks involved and will take immediate action to protect your reputation and secure the best possible outcome.

Our specialist team is on permanent standby to deal with any regulatory investigation, with particular expertise in dealing with HSE, Environmental Agency, Food Safety and Meat Hygiene, Police/Road Traffic prosecutions and Trading Standards related investigations.

Health & Safety

Providing a safe environment in which to work is a key responsibility for the management of any organisation. Here at Jacksons Health & Safety, we understand the complex legislative responsibility that reposes with business when assessing and managing the health and safety risks in their daily operation. Our specialists have a wealth of experience supporting clients in specialist areas including construction, education, energy and waste management, healthcare, local government, manufacturing and transport.

Regulating business activities which impact upon the environment has introduced a wealth of legislation addressing waste management, energy, use of natural resources and contaminated land. Managing environmental risks in organisations is now an essential part of corporate governance and no longer limited to traditionally high risk industries. Whether you need advice on compliance, due diligence or dealing with an environmental incident our specialists can provide real practical support. Managing investigations by the Environment Agency, local authority or other regulators can be difficult but we can guide you through the process to ensure the best outcome for your business. If the worst happens and you are facing a prosecution we can advise you on the best approach to secure a solution which meets your particular circumstances.
